Dear Zach & Katrina,

I hope you have the same love of the land as your father and I do. As this Christmas season approaches, it reminds us of beautiful memories working on our farm. We feel so fortunate we get to feed not only our family but our neighbors and community because of how our family farm has thrived and the variety of crops we produce through a variety of farming methods, including GMO Farming which allows farming families, like ours, to produce delicious and nutritious food with fewer natural resources, less pollution, and fewer pesticides.

Here are three wishes that I have for you:

First: Your love of our land only continues to grow

Second: You’ll continue the legacy of sustainability and conservation to continue to provide nourishment to neighbors near and far

Third: As time moves forward those around you will better appreciate what we as a farm family do and have done three generations

Our story is reflective of so many families living and working on farms around the country. It is my wish we will continue to find joy in our purpose as a family nourishing the land and producing safe, nutritious food.
